It is a card holder... the CF is inserted to adapt to the larger size to go in the Sewing Machine
It is very old tech, old laptops used to have a slot for removable cards years before USB... it was called PCMCIA.
Janome (who own Elna) used this for transfer of Embroidery designs and the expensive Cards that had the designs were this format... this adapter makes things portable
The USB reader is separate... most folk have one laying around, but they are cheap and widely avaailable
